Collaborative, hands-on learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics for all levels of experience!
Tech Camp features a dynamic, project-based format that emphasizes experiential learning, creative thinking and problem solving. Students will explore a subject by working as part of a team to investigate and respond to a complex question, challenge or problem.
Topics include robotics, coding, mechanical engineering, rocketry, environmental science, kinetics, structural engineering, transportation engineering and more. New this year are innovative projects funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health that focus on regenerative medicine and biofabrication.
- Middle school students entering grades 5-8 will explore a range of subject areas focused through day-long, hands-on activities. One or more new topics will be covered each day.
- High school students entering grades 9-12 will focus on a single week-long, in-depth project of their own choosing related to various areas of science, engineering and technology. Participants will engage in the engineering design process, problem solving exercises and a camp-wide poster presentation session at the end of the week. The TechLeaders program is another option that features a one-week long engineering project as well as leadership and entrepreneurship activities for students considering careers in STEM.
